When event organizer Maryann Makekau (Hope Matters) asked Reid to perform "The Prayer", on short notice, for her event at Destiny Worship, Reid enlisted his sister, Joanna, to accompany him. Their rendition was fabulous and the crowd let them know it. Reid also called upon his "momager", Jo, to sing Amazing Grace. It was a wonderful time. Thank you for inviting us Maryann.
Autism Sings has developed an Autism Awareness program and it is especially designed for schools and students. The program includes Jo Soria, RN, discussing autism and how it may relate to students, discussing how we can learn to reach out to those who may have various differences, encouraging students to try new experiences that will help broaden their horizons, and encouraging students to work hard to overcome obstacles. Included in the program were Reid singing a few relevant songs, and interaction with the students as they sang and danced along with him. Our multimedia presentation includes PowerPoint slides of Reid overcoming his own obstacles and a short video clip of Reid singing and dancing with the Fred Astaire Studio dancers at the Mattie Kelly Arts Theater. Last school year, the Okaloosa School District Title I Office invited Autism Sings to present our program to four schools and invited us back for the current school year (2017-2018). Like the previous presentations, this year's program has met with rave reviews from students and teachers. The goal of our program is to reach a young generation about autism, acceptance, and working hard to realize their dreams. Contact us if you would like to discuss the 45-60 minute program for your school, camp, or event.
Wait for it...Of course, Reid with the Auburn Cheerleaders. Thanks Marley.

For recording artist, actor, and performer Reid Soria, Autism Sings is the culmination of years spent overcoming the odds. Diagnosed with autism at the age of 3, Reid was never expected to be able to communicate or connect with the world around him. Now 33, Reid has channeled his talents and sheer grit into an unprecedented story of hope. And in finding his own voice, Reid has found a new voice for autism and is communicating and connecting beyond what was once considered possible. Follow the story and become a part of the dream. When words fail, Autism Sings!
--Autism Sings, 2014--

Reid doing what he does best at the Pensacola Museum of Arts Reception.
Reid danced a meringue number at the Fred Astaire "Dance Fantasy" with (left to right) fellow dancers Kimalee and Natalie. The trio was fantastic as always. Dancing with the Stars great , Tony Dovolani served as a guest judge. Friend and former dance partner Alex was back in town and joined them at the after production party. It was a great event that included great dancing and great fun.

For those of you who think this only happens in the Movies - we stopped at a local restaurant to have dinner and one of the restaurant staff came over and asked Reid to sing for the patrons. Naturally he knocked it out of the ballpark.
Reid recently visited San Antonio Texas. At the airport, he just had to pose next to the "Take a Selfie" ad advertising San Antonio's 300 birthday.
They say all work and no play makes you dull and boring. No chance of that with Reid. When Reid isn't rockin' the stage, traveling to gigs, going to rehearsals, or doing community service, he's making holes-in-one at the local miniature Golf Course and loving it!
Getting ready to sing at the CARD Artists and Autism reception at the Pensacola Arts Museum. Reid gave a beautiful performance which was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
